Very light gold, the swirl line beads up immediately, and drops thin legs as well as teardrops that hang on the glass. #thewhiskeychaps
ABV is very prominent, with damp leaf litter, tree bark, slightly vegetal too atm. Floral perfume eventually arrived for me, meadow flowers, and a fruit sweetness is teasing me. #thewhiskeychaps
Green grapes, icing sugar, bitter lemon, and an oily rag, not had that on a Macduff before. #thewhiskeychaps
The palate is where it’s at. Yes to the fruits, wide range, and it becomes very spicy, lots of 1st fill bourbon cask spices. Hot cinnamon gobstoppers, vanilla pod, a Turkish delight feel too. Bitter lemon and grapefruit pith. #thewhiskeychaps
Apricot pastries, then darker fruits break through. Blackcurrant jam, dates, figs even? Still very spicy, black liquorice, unsweetened espresso, some tannins, chocolate coated raisins, and prunes! #thewhiskeychaps
Medium long in general, but the spices do linger longer, and it continues to stay spicy for me. It’s much like the palate in all honesty. #thewhiskeychaps
